This month on Europeana Pro News, as the academic year draws to a close, we’re looking back to see what we, and our education community, have learned over the last months. Today, Bridget Martin, a history teacher in residence at EUROCLIO, gives us her top three lessons learned.
Thanks to the contribution of 130 teachers from across Europe and beyond, educators will find new ready-to-use learning scenarios and stories on how to integrate digital culture in education every week on our new blog.
We believe that a stronger link between the cultural and education sectors is both vital and mutually beneficial. That’s why, over the last year or so, we (the Europeana Foundation’s Reuse team) have been asking questions to our educational audiences and listening carefully to their answers.
The information we have gleaned will help data providers to better understand and cater to the needs of teachers and students by providing high-quality cultural data in relevant formats and on relevant topics. This will translate into more happy educators and more inspiring examples of reuse of their collections in educational settings of all types.
The first Europeana Education MOOC, ‘Europeana in your classroom’, delivered by European Schoolnet (EUN), ran between 30 April – 15 June 2018. The course introduced participants to the Europeana platform to help them build learning scenarios using digital culture and fostering the 21st-century skills.
